URBAN ALCHEMISTS was a group exhibition and public mural project curated by New York gallerist Jonathan LeVine, presented in association with Goldman Properties during the 2010 expansion of WYNWOOD WALLS located at 2516 NW Second Avenue in Miami. URBAN ALCHEMISTS ran from December 1—5, and featured work by ten highly celebrated and Internationally recognized artists coming out of the contemporary urban-folk and street art scenes. In addition to having works in the show, Parisian artist Invader created a mosaic mural on the façade of the exhibition space in his signature pixel-based style, and Californian artist Jeff Soto painted a large-scale mural on an adjacent exterior wall.
